Lacey Bonar Hull returns with a two-part episode on the princes in the Tower. For the first time on this show we have all three experts here to discuss and debate this hot topic. Dr Nicola Tallis, (Margaret Beaufort) Matthew Lewis (Richard III) and Nathen Amin (Henry VII) on history’s best whodunnit!
The music of the Tudors lends a hint into the personality and character of its composer. Henry VIII was known as quite the musician, and Anne Boleyn was said to have the voice of a siren. On this HoH, Heather chats with Jay Britton, founder of The Tudor Songbook – a classically trained soprano with a passion for Tudor History.
Christine Morgan joins us for her final installment on the Starz series, Becoming Elizabeth. This episode, the last in the series, takes a deep look at what we saw, what it meant, and what we can hope for in the future. Christine’s theater experience has given a perspective on the series you couldn’t find anywhere else. We are so grateful she offered to do it.
We hope you enjoyed this journey through time with us because we enjoyed engaging with you and sharing our thoughts on the show.
This week Christine is out with “the plague”, but like the rockstar that she is, found the energy to write down her thoughts. To guest host for Christine this week we have a wonderful friend of the show and fellow podcaster. You may or may not already know her from her show, Queens Podcast – Katy is here!
So here is Christine’s recap of episode 5 of Starz’s Becoming Elizabeth.
On this episode of A Brief History historian Christine Morgan continues the story of Henry VIII from Episode #162. Don’t worry, we’re getting near the end of his story and then we move on to the fascinating reign of Edward VI!

We know that Edward IV had a rather large library of books. On this episode the wonderful Danie Burton joins us to discuss Edward IV’s introduction to printed books, when the printing press was brought to England, and the man who brought it.
Imagine a world where books had to be written by hand. While it guaranteed beautiful craftmanship it was not accessible to all. The printing press introduced a world to medieval England that many could not have imagined.
